You should review your child custody order to determine if there are any limitations with transferring your child to a different school. The order may grant you the right to transfer your child to a different school without having to seek the permission of your child’s father. Alternatively, you could ask the father for permission. If he agrees, you should have him sign a notarized declaration for evidentiary purposes just in case he later objects to the transfer in a child custody legal proceeding.
